al-Houthi cosigned a letter to the Yemeni government with Abdullah al-Ruzami, the rebels' military leader, in May 2005 offering an end to the uprising if the government would send emissaries or ended the military campaign against the rebels. "But if injustice continues with killing, destroying, and imprisonment... then the trouble will not be solved, but will become more complicated and the gap will become even wider." He was a Yemeni lawmaker but was forced to go into hiding after the Yemeni government lifted his parliamentary immunity to try him for his involvement in the Houthi rebellion, he was then tried in absentia On 5 February 2010, he was sentenced to 15 years imprisonment.
